MAHLE will hold its presentation series for students at the IAA in Frankfurt again this year.

MAHLE development engineers will deliver the presentation „Drive Technology of the Future“ several times a day between September 19 and 23. Invited are students, professors and scientific employees from over 90 universities, universities of applied science and research facilities in Germany. More than 600 prospective engineers have already signed up for the presentation in advance. This event offers interested participants the opportunity to experience MAHLE and discuss with experts the perspectives and future advancements of automotive drive technology. Additionally, career consultations from Human Resource experts are available.

The presentation series for students took place for the first time at the 2003 IAA and was so successful that we were convinced to continue with this concept. At that time, more than 300 students participated in 19 presentations and commented positively about the informative event. Also Prof. Dr. Bernd Gottschalk, President of the German Association of the Automotive Industry (Verband der Deutschen Automobilindustrie = VDA), praised MAHLE greatly for this effort. He especially liked the idea of offering technical presentations to young prospective engineers from many German colleges and universities on the available premises of the trade show following the exhibit days for press and professional visitors.
